Web designers, the gauntlet has been thrown.
According to Adverblog, this website — part of a recruitment campaign for Tokyo’s Zokei University, an art and design school — is the coolest university website ever. (Hat tip to @ConversationAge for the link.)
The website looks exactly like a[n] 8-bit videogame, and I can’t imagine a better way to drive recruitment for an art and design school. If the website is so fresh and “brave”, you can definitely expect their approach to education to be as fresh and open.
It’s interesting, no doubt. But is it cool? It may be big in Japan, but would it work in the West?
What do you think?
